    Just poped up in my mind... its a punjabi couplet but i don't know who said it:

    Oh jannat mein koodi weechaan jithe tun nazrin na awayn

    Te oh doozakh meinoo lakh bahichtaan jithe tun peya aaweyn jaaweyn

    That paradise is worthless to me where i don't find you

    And that hell is worth a thousand times wherein you come and go

    Hazrat Shaykh Ibn al Farid :ra: was one of the greatest lovers of Our Beloved SAWS and his poetry is sublime especially his Qasida Khamriyya which begins,

    In memory of the Beloved

    we drank a wine;

    we were drunk with it

    before creation of the vine.

    jazak Allah khayran for this!

    Jannat bhi gawaara hai magar qismat mein merii Madina likh day...!

    Paradise is acceptable aswell but write Madina in my destiny...!

    I remember reading about one Shaykh who asked, "Will there be salah in paradise". When it was said "no", he said he'd rather not have it then!

    laysa su’lī mina’l jināni naýīma.n
    ghayra annī uĥibbuhā li arākā

    i don’t seek paradise to enjoy its bounties therein,
    except that i love it, so i can get to see Thee!
